Welcome to Junior 3.
In our class this year we have Darragh, Mati, Leo, Sean, Filip and Martina.
Aoife is our teacher and Lisa and Niamh are the Sna's in our class.
We are all excited for a year of learning, fun and making new friends.
On our bus outing we went to the fire station. We met a fireman called Keith. He showed us around the station. He showed us what clothes fire fighters wear to protect them from the fire. We got to try on his jacket, trousers, helmet and boots. He showed us the fire engine. We all climbed in and 1 boy got to 'drive' it. We saw the big hose and ladder and heard the siren. We all had so much fun.
We all ate Christmas dinner in school together. We ate turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes and broccoli. It was delicious. For dessert we had ice cream.
Santa's visit to school
Santa came to visit us in school. He brought presents for all the boys and girls. We all sang songs for him and showed him our lamh signs and danced for him. We all wore our Christmas jumpers too.
We are learning about the different seasons in junior 3. The season we have now is Winter. It is becoming cold outside. We do not have snow outside yet so we decided to make some in school using shaving foam and baking soda. We all took turns pouring some baking powder into a bowl and mixing it with shaving foam using a spoon. We then got to play with it. Some of us liked it more than others. We made a big mess and got snow all over our clothes but at least we smelled nice!
The Christmas market
On Thursday for our social outing we went to the Christmas market. We looked around at the stalls, at the decorations and the coloured lights lights. We all had a great time.
For Halloween Senior 2 invited us to the hall to play some spooky games.
For science week we did some experiments. We made puffy paint by mixing flour, salt, water and food colouring. we also made rain clouds by filling a glass with water, squirting shaving foam on top of the glass then adding food colouring to the foam.
The O' Duffy cup.
Sarah Dervan the captain of Galway camogie team came to visit us with the o Duffy cup. We wore our Galway jerseys and marron and white clothes. We all got to look at and hold the cup.
A trip to the playground
For our social outing we went on the bus. The weather was sunny so we went to the playground in Knocknacarra. Here are a few pictures we took of the class having fun together.
P.E with karen
On Wednesday mornings we have P.E. in the hall. Our teachers name is Karen. We all enjoy learning new skills and playing together. This week karen brought in a big blue sensory wrap that we all got into together, We loved running and bouncing off it and at the end we all lay down inside it for some relaxation time.
